For more than forty-five years now . . . . life has been about combining ministry and music.
To communicate the life-changing power of the Gospel from platforms of every description.
It's been an amazing journey that has included being a band member and vocalist for music groups and theatre companies that include: Roger Breland & Truth, The Bill Gaither Trio, The Gaither Vocal Band, Daybreak, Turningpoint, The Great American Opry, Country Tonite Theatre, Dollywood, and our own award-winning family entertainment venue, Eddie’s Heart & Soul Cafe in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
As a session and touring musician & vocalist, I've enjoyed opportunities to perform on stage or in the studio with a wide variety of artists including The Gaither Vocal Band, Phil Keaggy, Mylon Lefevre, 4Him, Amy Grant, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, The Speers, Steve Green, Sam Bush, Dann Huff, Lenny LeBlanc, and countless others.
Concert halls - theatres - amphitheaters - stadiums - arenas - and churches of every denomination and stripe.
Bible Conferences, Senior Adult Conferences, Youth Rallies and Student Conferences, College and University Chapels.
Parade floats - barns - Walmart parking lots - aircraft carrier hanger decks - quonset huts - rodeos - military bases - city parks -
beach resorts - street ministries - pregames - half-times - 5th quarters - music festivals - network and local television - theme parks and last but not least . . . national parks.
So many wonderful moments and memories with amazing friends.
These days . . . I continue to travel across the American continent and beyond.
Yet today, there is a new found passion and energy at the heart of our ministry.
Not so very long ago . . . . God very literally reinvented, rewired and revolutionized my life.
I am humbled and appreciative of the words of my longtime friend, Ron Logan of the Walt Disney Company:
"Eddie is a gifted singer/songwriter who has the ability to connect with any audience.
With a commitment to excellence in every facet of his performance - the years of experience are obvious . .
and yet, there is still the passion and joy of a performer at the very onset of his career."
JUST A FEW STRATEGIC WAYS YOU CAN UTILIZE OUR MINISTRY
- A WEEKEND TRAINING SESSION WITH YOUR WORSHIP TEAM -
-COACHING SESSION WITH YOUR BAND and/or INSTRUMENTALISTS-
just a few ideas we address:
1. Being Lead Worshippers rather than Worship Leaders.
2. Restoring dynamics and movement in the music.
3. Excellence in prayerful preparation and focused rehearsal.
4. Making songs your own . . . and vocally accessible to congregations.
5. Worship - more than a musical genre or specific style.
Sessions culminate with us joining to lead worship together in your weekend gatherings.

EVERY EVENT / PRESENTATION IS A JOYFUL CELEBRATION
of life and Biblical encouragement for your soul.
OUR INTENTION AND PURPOSE
is to fan the embers of hope in lives each and every day.
is to bring healing and renewal to people who are beat-up and broken.
Or - at least feel that way.
The most successful people - even people of faith -
find themselves in contemporary culture combating weariness,
discouragement and even depression.
Most of us just "perform" in a way to keep it all tucked away deep inside.
THE MUSIC WE SHARE
helps to establish that environment where joyful expectation can thrive -
focusing on building encouraging, life-altering faith
that sees beyond the daily grind of the obvious
to all that life in Christ can be.
We have the ability and insight to adapt the music and presentations
to best serve whatever setting into which we are invited.
In other words - we gear the music to best
communicate and minister to those in attendance.
As we have done for years . . . . we enthusiastically exercise flexibility.
You will quickly realize we are not purists about musical style.
We have presented our message and music in every setting imaginable.
Let's talk and pray together about Nancy and I
coming to your church, group or school.
peace and countless blessings.
